“Shoot for the stars but if you happen to miss shoot for the moon instead.”
― Neil Armstrong
As a child I elected to attend summer school. My love for learning and working with children led me down the path of speech & language pathology. Four years into my private practice, a mom asked me if her son could "just go to school with you". Two weeks later the clinic was registered as a private school. Now, almost 10 years later, the Entirety K-12 family has created a culture of learning where not just one but many students can enjoy their love for learning. A type of learning that engages all minds. -Founder, Dr. Penny Bryson
Our research-based program is designed to maximize growth in every area of a child’s development: academically, physically, socially, and emotionally. Students dive into a comprehensive curriculum that develops the whole child through core academics enriched with physical education, visual and fine arts.
This cross-division teamwork, along with small class sizes and a student-teacher ratio allows for the thoughtful, individualized approach that characterizes our private school. Faculty serve as mentors to each child, as they inspire gifted students to unlock their full potential and transform struggling learners into well-grounded scholars who are proud of their accomplishments.
A wide variety of extracurriculars allow for a strong focus on experiential learning which cultivates students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills and develops the creativity and collaboration that are hallmarks of 21st-century learners.
At Entirety K-12 (EK12), we cultivate an environment where a diverse student body, ranging from gifted students to those with learning differences, can thrive. We believe that when students are engaged in their own education, with the freedom for creative thought and exploration, they become natural learners who excel.
Student well-being is at the heart of EK12. Here, this private school is not equated with stress, but with the freedom to imagine, create, and rediscover the joy of learning. We integrate therapeutic and relaxation techniques into every aspect of the day – from the simple practice of removing shoes after entering the school to mindfulness moments. In classrooms, faculty play music, integrate yoga, and diffuse essential oils to stimulate brain activity and promote calmness. Children are free to respectfully move around the classroom and find a comfortable position in which to learn. This focus on student wellness leads to more harmonious and productive classrooms, as even the youngest learners are equipped with the resources they need to find inner balance, focus on lessons, and collaborate with classmates.
Dedicated, caring educators are the foundation of EK12. Highly effective, qualified teachers and staff work as a collaborative team to help students meet high expectations through an intentional balance of challenge and support. Through regular planning sessions, they assess student growth to help every learner meet appropriate developmental, academic, and personal goals. With the freedom and flexibility to develop curriculum that engages student interest, EK12 faculty love what they do and spread positive energy. Their enthusiasm is contagious. Our students do what was once thought impossible — they look forward to the next day of school.
